O2 head on an XTL5000?

The O5 head on an APX looks the same as an O5 XTL5000 head.

So can you use an APX O2 head on an XTL5000?

No. It'll only work on an APX.

Further FYI: only the black-face O5 head will work on XTL and APX radios. Gray-face XTL5000 O5 heads will not sync firmware with an APX mobile.
When exposed to Rapid Fire Growth or Thermal Emergency, two things are lost:
1. Ability to use fine motor skills
2. Presence of mind

I've had no problem running older XTL heads (with new-ish CH FW) on APX drawers.

Firmware pushed to the head fine.
